About the Project

A Log of everything I've painted in the past few years to keep track of it all, and since i keep losing my paint schems to keep a note of these. Stuff done and currently working on: 30k Imperial Fists Battletech Mercs Heavy Gear Northern Guard and Some Warhammer fantasy thrown in as and when the mood takes me.

All the outstanding heresy models are now completed from the waiting pile. Spent a leisurely Sunday afternoon basing the two Contemptors and adding decals to all the tactical marines.

Just need to order a bunch of shoulder pads and a Praetor next month and this project is finished until heresy 2.0 is released

Since I’m still waiting on bases for the Contemptor dreads to arrive, I had a look what was I  the bought but not started and finished pile. Upon doing so I found some forgeworld mk. iii space marines left o er from when I was making a kill team. Also about was a box of plastic mk. iii marines.

So that was the weekends work assembling another 10 marines to add to the previous 10 for a full size 20 man unit.

Managed to get the 10 mostly finished. Just need to finish off the legs and then all that’s needed is to get somemore forgeworld shoulder pads and we are good to go.

Back to work now after the Christmas break, so working on projects is going to slow down again.

 

But saying that have managed to get the Tartaros terminators rebased. Also  roke out the agrax earthsahade to finish off all the panel lining on them. Just waiting now on the micro sol to dry on the transfers

More progress made today. The Deredeo Dreadnaught is now finished and ready to join his brothers fight on beyond death.

Along with the dread we have a squad of Terminators joining the fray. these have been rebased and given some love to get them up to scratch for the current version of my Imperial fists. Some panel lining was required and the addition of some Forgeworld transfers were added to finish them off.

The updates continue

Up next from the pile of Half/Almost Finished models is a bunch of Tartaros terminators and two Contemptor Dreads.

The Dreadnaughts should be quick enough to get finished as these just need new bases, but the terminators need some love. Seems when they were first painted by past me i have neglected to do any work on the back of the models so the are all just bare yellow back there, so some panel lining and metals are needed.

The updates continue

and lastly we have an updated shot of the completed brothers gathered together

Backpacks finished for the tactical squad meaning they are all ready to be added to the display case with the rest of their fellows.

Doing the backpacks was tedious but pretty quick once i got my head down and got on with it. Gun Metal silver and then back washes, with Agrex Earthshade panel lining.

Then finished the main body and missile laucher for the Deredeo Dreadnought.

Just the arms to work on now for this then it can be added to the group as well

Progress on the Imperial Fists

Finally remembered that i had Sigismund and Alex Pollux for the Imperial Fists.

These were both magnatised and used as part of my kill team for Kill team 2018.

will add the display base for Sigismund to my backlog as i never finished that of as well.

So today we had the delivery of some new toys. This will be my gang for a campaign of Necromunda.

So I thought I’d start with a gang that wasn’t in the original game. My plans for painting these will be to implement the heresy scheme for the world eaters in some form. Not sure how yet, but I’ll do some tests before I Dive in and see what happens

New arrivals and finishing off some of the backlog

Speaking of Heresy, first up it’s time to get around to finishing some outstanding half finished imperial fists.

That’s means today has been spent getting some tactical marines finished off. Finished off the shoulder pads and panel lining on these today. And cleaned up the power packs which have now been Primed averland sunset ready for painting tomorrow.

Most reacent Work, Heavy Gear Northern Guard, these have been the last 6 months of work. Started when i was looking through the old bit box and came accross a few infantry models.

Ended up painting almost 4x the points needed for a standard game, but loved every minute of painting these little guys

Next up we have my Davion aligned Mercanaries.

These are made up of 3d prints based on the Mechwarrior online models.

I was happy with these as they were the first models i’d used an airbrush on and think these came out looking good and warm as a hard and battleworm Mercanary setup should be.

 

 

Then we have a small understrengh lance of Kurita Mechs with battle armour support

and finally we have my original light lance of mercanarys from 20 years ago and my generic Ghost Bears who i will always have a soft spot and have repainted several time over the years.

and the many many books

Lets start with the oldest of the projects.

Started with converting and magnatising Alexis Pollux and then things just went from there.

And the Half finished models that have been sat waiting for me to finish them since the start of 2020
